Lectrosonics have introduced a new micro digital recorder, the  PDR (Personal Digital Recorder) for professional use. For situations in which the distance is extreme or where using a wireless microphone is not practical, the PDR recorder can travel with your subject and capture professional quality audio, synchronized with timecode. The tiny size and rounded shape make the PDR unobtrusive and easy to place in garments and costumes, and easy to conceal when used as a “plant” microphone to capture environmental or location sound. The PDR records in 24 bit, 48 kHz digital onto a Micro SD card (HC type) in the industry-standard .wav (Broadcast Wave File) format. The PDR can be jammed to external time code via the standard 5-pin Lemo connector. A headphone output jack allows for monitoring the signal input or listening to previously recorded files.

The input connector is the industry standard TA5M jack that accepts any mic or line level signal, and provides bias voltage to power a wide variety of electret lavaliere microphones. The input connection and wiring is compatible with microphones pre-wired for use with Lectrosonics professional wireless microphone transmitters with servo bias type inputs. Setup and adjustment is made through an intuitive interface provided by the keypad and LCD. In keeping with typical Lectrosonics mechanical designs, the housing is machined from a solid aluminum billet then hard anodized for the ruggedness needed in field production. The PDR runs for over 6 hours on a single lithium AAA battery. Audio specifications: 20 – 20 kHz frequency response, 105 dB(A) signal to noise (in HD mono mode), <0.035% distortion. Time code is SMPTE 12M – 1999 compliant. The PDR is 2.3×2.1x.7 inches (60x54x17 mm), and weighs 2.5 oz (71 grams) with battery. MSRP of $900

The TELEFUNKEN TDA-1 (mono) and TDA-2 (dual) are newly designed active FET direct boxes that employ discrete Class-A FET circuitry coupled with a high quality transformer that provides the perfect balance between clean, high headroom performance and warm, saturated tone.
The TELEFUNKEN TD-1 (mono) and TD-2 (dual) are new passive transformer direct box designs that combine premium quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm character.

In the heart of each new TELEFUNKEN direct box design are custom-wound output transformers by OEP/Carnhill, made in the UK. The circuit boards feature gold-plated traces for maximum conductivity and are hand-assembled exclusively with through-hole components providing a secure and reliable connection compared to common surface-mount technology. The circuits are housed in an extremely durable extruded aluminum enclosure with recessed heavy-duty metal toggle switches to engage a -15 dB pad and ground lift. The rugged construction is virtually indestructible, able to easily withstand the wear and tear of gigging. The simple and elegant design approach delivers a new standard in reliability and performance for direct boxes.

Radial’s  Headload Guitar Amplifier Attenuator comes with a built-in Radial JDX direct box. The JDX has gained tremendous notoriety with artists including Megadeth, Sting, Rascal Flatts, Aerosmith, Radiohead and Evanescence often replacing the guitar and bass amp microphones. This is coupled with a 6-position voicing switch that lets you choose the desired amp and cabinet emulation, a 2-band EQ for fine tuning and a low pass filter to eliminate overly harsh harmonics. Two JDX direct outputs offer the choice of pre or post EQ settings to allow the artist to control his studio  monitors to suit while sending a non-equalized tone to the mixing console. For engineers who prefer to combine a microphone with a direct feed, the Headload has also been outfitted with a Radial Phazer – phase alignment tool. In the studio the Phazer can also be used for creative equalization such as creating Boston-type out-of-phase rhythm tones or an ultra-thick wall-of-sound. A second set of ¼” line outputs may be used to feed additional stage amps or effects if needed.
